TARGET: Low-tax Lexus to storm fleet market

Lexus are aiming to save fleets up to £2,000 on their annual tax bill with the introduction of the new GS 300h hybrid.

Priced from £31,495, the vehicle – which delivers CO2 emissions from 109g/km and consumption of up to 60.1mpg – is expected to storm the company car market.

Best-in-class BIK rates of 13% are achieved with the 2.5litre hybrid powertrain in entry-level SE trim, garnering potential customer savings of £2,000 a year compared to premium diesel and hybrid competitors.

The SE’s 109g/km CO2 emissions place it in band B for annual Vehicle Excise Duty.

It is available in three other equipment grades – Luxury, F Sport and Premier – with order books now open and first deliveries expected from January 2014.

The Luxury and Premier versions offer 57.6mpg, while the F Sport achieves 56.5mpg, with all three emitting 115g/km of CO2 and placed within band C for road tax.

Standard equipment on the SE trim will include electric steering wheel adjustment, 12-speaker sounds system, DAB radio, DVD player, cruise control, push button start, parking sensors and electrically-adjustable, heated front seats.

Extra items in the Luxury trim include leather upholstery, navigation, 18inch alloys and a Blind Spot Monitor pack with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Meanwhile, the F Sport adds exterior and interior styling elements, perforated leather sports seats, 10-spoke 19inch wheels and Adaptive Variable Sports Suspension.

At the top of the range, the Premier takes in a Mark Levinson 17-speaker hi-fi system, 18-way electric front seat adjustment with memory, a new colour head-up display, AVS and LED fog lamps.
